Tony Bobulinski, a Navy veteran who gave a remarkable press conference Thursday in Nashville, Tenn., just 90 minutes before the evening’s final presidential debate, will also have three calls with the feds to support his claims.
“This morning lawyers for Tony Bobulinski informed the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee that the FBI asked [Bobulinski] to sit for an interview today in addition to providing copies of his phones,” Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson’s office said.
An interview with the Senate committees that was supposed to happen Friday has been postponed due to the FBI interview.
“I appreciate that the FBI has a job to do, and I am glad they are finally taking an interest in these concerning financial matters that our Committees have been investigating for months,” Johnson said.
“I expect that Mr. Bobulinski will speak with our committee as soon as possible and fully share his insights into the Biden family’s business dealings.”
The two Senate committees issued an 87-page report last month on Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings. The report showed several deals and jobs and alleged Hunter Biden was paid $3.5 million in 2014 by the wife of Moscow’s former mayor, for unknown reasons, and also that his father may have been involved in it.
Committee Chairmen Johnson and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said in a joint statement Thursday they invited five people named in bombshell Hunter Biden emails, implicating Joe Biden in dealings in China and Ukraine.
“As part of the committees’ efforts to validate the authenticity of recently publicly released emails involving the Biden family’s international financial entanglements, we sent letters to five individuals identified in the emails. Those letters were sent yesterday, and the deadline is October 23, 2020,” Johnson and Grassley said.
Bobulinski on Thursday showed reporters three phones that he said he had from 2015 to 2018, saying they were evidence that he would provide the FBI. Hours before, he confirmed the appearance of Joe Biden being cut into a China business proposal.
“The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski told.
President Trump attacked Biden at the debate for alleged corruption. “You’re ‘the big man,’ I think. Your son said, ‘We have to give 10 percent to the big man.’ Joe, what’s that all about? It’s terrible,” Trump said, referring to a 2017 email recovered from a hard drive formerly belonging to Hunter Biden, which describes a 10 percent set-aside for “the big guy” as part of a prospective deal involving China’s largest private energy company.
